Italia is the official female personification of Italy. Known officially as Italia turrita, the second piece of her name points to the 2,000-year history of the figure that dates back to the Roman Empire when the Roman priests predicted that only the deity Cybele could save the city. Cybele was often depicted with a turreted crown, just as Italia wears in this new Allegories Series design.

Italia turrita is based on the deity of fertility known as Cybele. She came into popular design use during the Second Punic War between 218 and 202 BC. During the early 1st century BC under the reign of Denarius, Italia turrita came into wider acceptance as a symbol of a unified, peaceful Italy under Roman rule after the Social War.
